The Lost Abbey looking at Cardiff for Tasting Room
UPDATE: Our meeting with the Planning Commission has been postponed, there was a last-minute issue with our application concerning our ability to have patio space, which will be resolved. We’ll post another update in the near future concerning the time of the next meeting. Cheers!
Looking to continue to grow The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing’s offerings to even more Southern Californians, The Lost Abbey is taking steps to opening its first satellite tasting room, choosing the community of Cardiff.
The new potential tasting room location, located at 2007 San Elijo Avenue in the Cardiff Towne Center Complex (Cardiff’s largest shopping center) will serve as an alternative destination to enjoy The Lost Abbey’s core lineup as well as beers from its award winning barrel-aging program.
The construction of the new tasting room location still has several obstacles to overcome. Port Brewing Co / The Lost Abbey will be reaching out to the Cardiff community for support in this venture. The biggest hurdle is the Planning Commission hearing with the City of Encinitas, taking place Today (Thursday, June 5th) at 6pm.
The Lost Abbey is encouraging Cardiff residents to join us at the meeting (at The Encinitas Civic Center, 505 S. Vulcan Avenue) to help bring our award-winning beers to their coastal area and along the way, become an additional community center for the neighborhood of Cardiff.
In doing so, the new location would be equally beneficial for both parties; An opportunity for The Lost Abbey to showcase its local hand-crafted beers, year-long charitable donations and a shared appreciation for Cardiff and its residents.
“Cardiff has always been one of my favorite beach communities,” said Director of Brewery Operations Tomme Arthur. “We love its fiercely independent feel and a love of the local beaches makes it a special place for us.”
